terms of service [English]
Terms of service often limit a provider's obligations and liabilities while establishing legal protections for the provider.
- McLelland, et al. 2014 (†403 9): The “Terms and Conditions (TaC),” “Terms of Service (ToS),” or similarly named document TaC may contain more general clauses that would encompass all of the services that a provider offers, such as conditions for service termination, legal protections for the service provider in terms of content uploaded by the client, and copyright terms. In general, these contracts describe the client’s obligations when using the service, and they are clearly meant to protect the service provider more than the client. [Text includes citations] (†467)
